AVX Corporation offers a series of high-CV resin-moulded, surface-mount tantalum chip capacitors with a miniature and low-profile facedown design optimised for automotive electronics applications. The new F98-AJ6 Series capacitors are offered in miniature 0603 and 0805 chip sizes with maximum heights of only 1mm and 0.8±0.1mm, respectively, and provide facedown under-tab terminations developed to attain high capacitance, high volumetric efficiency, and high PCB assembly densities and assist in conserving board space and lessening costs. The series also offers what is claimed to be the industry’s smallest and highest-CV 0603 tantalum capacitor rated at 10μF/10V and is qualified to AEC-Q200, free from the DC capacitance/voltage dependency that MLCCs experience, lead-free compatible, and RoHS compliant.
“Our family of F98 Series tantalum capacitors has a history of delivering superlative performance, so we are very proud to continue that tradition with the release of the new F98-AJ6 Series tantalum SMD chip capacitors, which feature the smallest and highest-CV 0603 tantalum product rated at 10μF/10V cuarrently available on the market,” said Allen Mayar, product marketing manager, AVX. “The new F98-AJ6 Series capacitors have been tested and proven to deliver high capacitance and high volumetric efficiency in a variety of secondary power line circuits within automotive applications and have a miniature, low-profile package with facedown, under-tab terminations that help boost performance and provide critical space savings.”
Typical applications for the devices include secondary power line circuits in automotive applications such as infotainment and cabin electronics systems, camera modules, and digital millers, as well as certain industrial applications.
